Many generations of the Alois family have worked in the silk business, producing high-quality textiles that have been displayed in the Louvre, the Vatican, the Quirinale (home of the president of Italy), and the White House. In the early 20th century, the company, like many in Europe, provided food and wine for its employees, inspiring the owners to craft their own wines.

In 2000, Michele Alois debuted his family’s wines on the market under the estate name Pontepellegrino. With Nicola Trabucco overseeing the vineyards and Riccardo Cotarella orchestrating cellar work, the estate—which now bears the family name—has received several plaudits from the press.

The estate cultivates the area's principle indigenous varietals— Falanghina, Pallagrello Bianco, Casavecchia, Aglianico. With the exception of Aglianico, all of the other varietals appear in monovarietal bottlings. Caiati is comprised of Pallagrello Bianco, an extremely obscure varietal—less well-known than even Fiano, Greco di Tufo, and Falanghina. Often confused with the rare Coda di Volpe, Pallagrello Bianco is one of the few Italian grapes that has a black sibling grape (Pallagrello Nero). The Campole bottling is a blend of Aglianico (70%) and Casavecchia (30%).
